The geometric and asymmetric elements on the façade is designed such that the transparent shell that is made of a special copper and glass structure which reduces the amount of heat transfer.

The main idea behind such design is to accommodate a 24 hour exhibition that attempts to capture the prominent perspective from the road access and to take advantage of the location.

The interior structure concentrates within the main core of the building, still adjacent to public circulation. The shape of the basement and the ground floor shrink in the mezzanine floor, it expands and goes beyond the limits of the plot in the office floors and shrinks again towards the roof.
